Weekly roundup

Another week has ended and it’s time to share some of my favorite moments from this week and some from the last few weeks. I hope everyone had a great week and you have fun fall activities planned for this weekend. Sidenote.. I really want to go apple picking this year since I’ve never had the chance to go. Yeah I know, I live in New England and I’ve never gone apple picking. I’m seriously envious of the people who are posing on Instagram in their cute outfits! Don’t worry I’ll be there soon!

 

1. Solange at the Orpheum 

On 9/28 I saw Solange at the Orpheum theater and I was so excited to finally see her live since she cancelled her Boston Calling performance. Someone from work gave me a free ticket in the balcony and I couldn’t refuse. She was amazing live and her voice is incredible. I felt weird at first because I’ve never gone to a concert alone but I didn’t even care I was so into watching her sing and dance I didn’t notice anything else around me.

 

2.Skincare routine as of lately

I received a few gifts from brands I’m partnering with so I’m trying out a new fall skincare routine. In the morning I use my Clarisonic Mia 1  with a cleanser that comes with the product. After I use my Thayer’s lavender witch hazel toner to get the extra dirt off my face and to open up my pores. Lastly, I use my L’occitane face cream called Divine Cream and it’s so great.

 

3. Doughnuts

I’m getting into the spirit of Fall so I made apple cider and pumpkin doughnuts! They were so good. The apple cider doughnuts were gluten-free and they went perfectly with coffee.

 

4. J.Jill Fall Collection

J.Jill sent me their fall collection and it’s full of fun fall pieces. They are starting to cater to younger women now and their pieces have become more versatile.  Click the link above to shop the collection. In a few weeks I will be receiving the November collection. I’ll be putting together a fall fashion haul from J.Jill very soon.

 

5. Paris Fashion Week Street Style 

I can always depend on The Cut to keep me up to date on Street style. Paris Fashion week is my favorite and if you know me then you would know I love everything about Paris. Here are some of my favorite street style looks. All photos by Nabile Quenum.

Weekly roundup

We’ve made it to Friday so it’s time for my 2nd installment of weekly roundup. I got back from Nashville last Sunday and I’m still tired. Coming back from a trip and jumping back into your regular schedule is the hardest. I do miss all of the food we had there and the biscuits, OH MY GOD THE BISCUITS! I can’t even explain how good they were. I’m really starting to like these weekly roundup post. It gives me an excuse to talk about fashion and lifestyle all the time!

1.Taste of Seaport

Anything involving food and drinks I’m going to show up for. I had the opportunity to try samples from restaurants in the Seaport area like Sweetgreen, Strega Waterfront, Sapore restaurant and bar, Wagamama and many more. Wagamama had this beef brisket sample that was OUT OF THIS WORLD! And By Chloe, your ice cream and chocolate chip cookies were absolutely delicious.

 

2.Nina Garcia is the new EIC of Elle Magazine 

Hearst announced this news on Tuesday the 12th. She was the creative director for Elle so I’m excited to see how she can take this magazine to the next level.

 

3.Media Companies are realizing they NEED social media influencers 

Editors and publishing houses did not want to hop on board with the Influencer trend a while ago. Now they’re embracing what Influencers can do for their business. Micro-influencers are also taking over the industry. Their smaller audience tends to have more of an impact on readers which leads to better engagement.

 

4.College Fashion Week

I’m headed to College fashion week this weekend and I got the chance to treat myself to a fall fashion haul which was a gift from Primark. I’m completely set on fall clothing this season and I couldn’t be happier.

 

5. Weekend sales! 

This weekend Loft is having a sale with items up to 40% off. Check out my picks down below.

 

6.  The best street style from NYFW – Images from The Cut 

I enjoyed keeping up with NYFW this year. The weather was beautiful so people really went all out when it came to their outfit choices. The Cut has a great slideshow of Street Style outfits. The photo below is of Tiffany Hsu

Weekly roundup

Hi, everyone! I hope your week was amazing. I love short weeks but they also confuse me because I’m always a day behind. I can’t complain though because it’s fashion week and I’m keeping up with all of my favorite and bloggers through Instagram. Today I’m introducing a new series called “Weekly Roundup”. I will be linking articles, sales, and so many other fun things I want to share with my readers. Let me know what you’re interested in and I’ll make sure to add it to my blog.

Outfit Details

Dress: Loft, Shoes: Old Navy, Bag: Nordstrom Rack

1. Shopbop Makeover

I was scrolling through a few Instastories and I had major FOMO because of the Shopbop event. I’ve always had a major thing for Shopbop! I love the website layout and how clean all of the photos are.  Shopbop recently gave the brand a makeover and I must say it’s very refreshing.

 

2. Skincare

Patchology sent me a wonderful package full of fun skin care goodies to try. I love trying new products on my face. Their lip mask and eye gels are amazing. I also came home to a gift from L’Occitane which was super cool. The team sent me bubble bath, hand cream, body oil for the shower and face cream. I think I’m good on skincare for a while.

 

3. Travel Plans!

I’m heading to Nashville from Thursday-Sunday. It’s a short trip but I’ll make sure to get a lot of stuff done.  I’m excited to try all of the delicious food and see some landmarks. Let me know if there’s anything I should check out.

 

4. Earl’s Kitchen & Bar in the Prudential Center

Earl’s Kitchen & Bar opened a new location in the Prudential Center and it’s so dreamy. I’ve gone to the Assembly Row location once for brunch and it was delicious so I will be visiting again very soon.

 

5.Something Navy teams up with Nordstrom! 

Arielle is one of my favorite bloggers to follow on Instagram so I was excited to read that she’s teaming up with Nordstrom on a collection. The collection ranges in sizes too so I appreciate that she’s really listening to her followers and what they want.

Overdue beach day – Nordstrom rack

Bathing suit: Nordstrom Rack

This is my first time on the beach this summer so it was necessary to take a few pictures of my new one piece bathing suit. I can’t really complain because I had the chance to swim in a pool so I was able to enjoy the water in some way. There’s something about the beach that’s so relaxing. I was raised in Revere, Ma and for those of you who aren’t familiar with the city it’s about 20 minutes outside of Boston and there’s a really nice beach there. My parents and I would always go here to grab Kelly’s Roast Beef and during the summer my cousins and I would go to the carnival they set up every year. I have so many great memories here so I will always cherish this beach.

This Sole East bathing suit is so comfy and purple is my favorite color! This bathing suit isn’t on the website anymore but there are some adorable bikinis left. If you have a tropical vacation planned I think you guys would like their selection. Even though September is in a few days It’s never too late for a beach day right?

6 fall items under $100

Fall clothing is all about simplicity, layers, and bold colors. I love big sweaters and colorful jackets so I put together some fall tops and jackets I’m really into right now. Fall clothing is something you should always invest in. My fall clothes tend to last longer than my summer clothes because they are durable. I still have jackets from a few years ago that are in great shape. All of the items are cute but I’m really into the ModCloth faux leather jacket, the loft jeans, and the pink Boden sweater.

I love wearing my leather jackets with huge scarves. It’s the perfect casual look for any occasion. I have this scarf from Primark I’m obsessed with and it’s so warm and fuzzy. Everyone in Boston seems to feel the same way because I’ve seen so many women wearing it. Which picks do you like? Let me know in the comments below.

Summer isn’t over for me. I refuse to believe that it’s August and in a few weeks September will be here. I bought a few sweaters during my trip to Toronto because it was so cold up there! But I knew I had to take full advantage of this dress before it was too late. I stopped by the Market Street Lynnfield Outlets with my mom a few weeks ago and of course, we went into Loft. We always seem to find our way into a Loft store and we always leave with something new. My style has definitely changed over the past few months, I’m really into the preppy look right now and I’m not sure why. Loft sizes run really small so I got this dress in a size two. I’m normally a size 4-6 depending on the store. So make sure to try the dresses on before you purchase. My Asos shoes are a size 8. The shoe sizing at Asos is also kind of strange so I always get a size up just to be careful.

I never thought I would be able to pull off a dress with lemons on it but I really love this look! It’s so fun and colorful. You’re the best Loft! I can’t wait to see what the Fall/Winter collection looks like.

What I Wore: Primark Skirt

Top: Loft, Skirt: Primark, Heel: Asos

These photos were taken on a really really humid day here in Boston. Even an outfit like this was too much! But I love this skirt and I wanted to share it. I purchased it from Primark a year ago and it’s still in good shape. Happy Friday everyone!
